There aren’t many automobiles in the industry today that can elicit as much as excitement as a massively powerful supercar like the 2016 Dodge Viper ACR, so it shouldn’t come as too big a surprise that the vehicle is already picking up steam ahead of its release in about a year, particularly now that we know pretty much everything there is to know about the car.

For example, it has been made clear that the new Viper will pack an 8.4-liter V10 engine capable of producing a massive 645 hp and 600 lb-ft of torque, while also including upgrades to elements like aerodynamics, tires, and brakes, all in an effort to make the car faster than it has ever been. In fact, in a recent press release Dodge even christened the vehicle as the “Fastest Street-Legal Viper Track Car Ever.”

Yes, it’s built for tracks but it also has the benefit of being street legal, which none of our sportiest customers are ever going to complain about.

“The Viper has always been more of a street-legal race car than a track-capable streetcar, and the new 2016 Dodge Viper ACR is the fastest street-legal Viper track car ever,” said Tim Kuniskis, President and Chief Executive Officer – Dodge Brand and SRT Brand, FCA – North America. “Our goal is to arm our enthusiasts with the ultimate Viper track car to dominate road courses around the world.”

While orders for the vehicle are being taken now, manufacturing doesn’t start until the third quarter of this year. But good things come to those who wait, and the 2016 Dodge Viper ACR is a very good thing.
